- The Squeaky entourage put us up in the Sheraton Hotel for two nights while in Hamilton. It was at the hotel bar after this show that Squeaky & her gal pals spotted Bobby. Lets juts say it wasn't a #metoo moment. They returned with cheshire grins & informed us that our tab was picked up by Brent curtesy of Bob. Shortly thereafter things got debaucherous. The fallowing day we were escorted, not just out of the hotel, but a RCMP escort to the Hamilton city limits. I kid you not.

Anyway, the weather was much better than the Spring we experienced this year with highs in the mid to upper 60's. The town shut down the blocks around the venue and it turned into Dead Head Central.
There was a library almost attached to the venue and I spent hours before the show started recharging the internal batteries, as it wasn't for another year of so before I made an external SLA battery that would run the deck for 8 hours or more.
The atmosphere inside the venue was typical upstate NY energy. In other words it was somewhere between the laid back West Cost and frantic NYC vibe. Kind of like Baby Bear's rocking chair. The show did not disappoint, as demonstrated on the recording and subsequent releases from the band. Healy and Cutler multitracked this entire tour and released "Without a Net" from those tracks. Later, of course, the entire and abbreviated parts were released, too.
So, what does this audience recording provide that the multitrack release didn't provide? Well, the energy is always different and the recreation of the sound field is more accurately presented as you would have heard and felt it if you were there. I recommend listening with headphones, since the recording technique used was chosen to maximize a sense of real space. God, you will almost smell the pachouli and herb wafing up from the crowd.
Besides this it is the music that counts most and, with that, there were a number of highlights for me. Check out the set list and I think you will agree. Further, the playing is fresh and exicuted with passion. What more could you ask for?
Enjoy the music. I know I did!
